Charlie Ahearn Interview, Part 2

October 24, 2007

The "Wild Style" Director talks about what inspired him to make the seminal hip-hop movie 25+ years ago, what it was like introducing hip-hop to Japan, and where he sees hip-hop's spirit living in 2007 like it was back then. (part one is here)

It's refreshing to hear of the roots of our culture and how we blossomed into a worldwide phenomenon.

It's saddening however how a lot of this rich history is often taken for granted. Not to mention often lost altogether.

I've been itching for that Part 2. That's an excellent interview. It's amazing how much went on before I was introduced to hip-hop. I was a really small kid in a southern California elementary school in the early '80's (I can't really remember exact years one this) and all of a sudden people started dragging out cardboard onto the playground and were breakdancing during recess. I wasn't quite sure what was going on, but I was hooked, and I have been ever since. Fascinating post. Thank you.
